      Favourite Sweets - The False Teeth By The Time I'm 40 Thread
      Aug 14, 2008 07:04:20 pm
      Anyone else love sweets when they were little? I did, so thought it'd be funny to start a thread on it! :D

      Here are some of my favourite sweets from when I was a nipper, there's a link to a great site if anyone wants to add some of theirs! ;):

      http://www.retrosweetshampers.co.uk/sections/20/retro_sweets.html

      Double Dips - Two flavours of sherbert to eat with the Swizzlestick, if I remember correctly! :D



      Rainbow Crystals - more multi coloured sherbert delight!



      Candy Shrimps - Don't know why I loved them but I did! ;D



      ABC Letters - maybe my passion for reading came from eating so many of these?  :P

      I just love getting a big bag of pik 'n' mix, I get nearly every type of sweet there and end up spending about £13 but its worth it (although a lot of the sweets are big and make the bag weigh more so it should only be about £12.50 :D :D)

      One of my favourites was McGowans Highland Toffee it used to have a big scary hairy cow on the wrapper!





      i used to love all toffee even bon bons (but we wont go there!) and it never did me any harm.





      If I'm honest though id rather have a packet of pickled onion monster munch any day of the week. ;)

      I used to like those little white chocolate drops covered in hundreds and thousands, my Mum used to let me decorate cakes with them, I've still got a thing now about white chocolate, especially the white chocolate champagne truffles from Thorntons  ;)

      Yummy !

      Well, let's just say that Wham bars require some tolerance from the tastebuds.

      I'm determined to keep this thread on topic MsG!  ;) :D :D
